Publisher's Description

It can hurt to hear someone tell it like it is. But sometimes you need to get the truth, straight up. And the truth is that it's not about you--it's about God. Maybe you have relied on your own strength for far too long. You haven't been able to count on other people, so you just do your own thing. But God has bigger plans for you. God wants to use you to change the world. Rebecca Osaigbovo, conference speaker and author of Chosen Vessels, shows how black women can stand up to Satan's lies and face tough problems, not in your own strength but by finding God's strength in the midst of your weaknesses. She says this to women who want to be the keys to change in their homes, churches and communities: "If you want things to be different, then stop going your own way and follow God's lead. Lean not on your own understanding, and he'll make your paths straight."

Editorial Reviews

"This radical book is not a feel-good message but an in-your-face book that burns up any narcissism in your soul. [Rebecca Osaigbovo] motivates women to know the beauty and power of a life totally surrendered to Christ. When a strong black woman becomes a Christian, she has to lean on God. She has to see strength from a different perspective. . . . God is going to use the woman who delights in her weakness but walks in the strength of the Lord and the power of his might. This book will surely be the talk of the every urban beauty shop--especially for those women who find themselves looking in the mirror and getting a revelation that 'it's not about me--but up to me.' Osaigbovo inspires women to take the focus off themselves and become powerful partners with God."
"I finished reading It's Not About You--It's About God, and my heart and soul have been revived. I wholeheartedly endorse this wonderful book that will encourage Christians to believe God more and understand that the battle is not ours but the Lord's. When we fully realize this, we can stop trying to order our own steps and allow the Lord to do his work. Every Christian woman needs this book in her hands to read and implement these truths in her life."
"Through practical illustrations women will identify with the struggle of allowing God to operate on their lives. Although women may say 'Ouch' while Rebecca is used as an instrument in the hand of God to perform much-needed surgery on deep heart issues, they will also say 'Thank God' as she applies the balm of Gilead."

    I was looking for a good book to give my Sunday School students for Christmas that would really speak to everyday trials and still be biblically and scripturally sound. I had never heard of this author nor this book but thanks to Christianbook.com's ability to browse through some pages, I was able to discern the value of this book. This writer is down to earth, uses plain language and examples to get her point across and incorporates the actual Word into her text. It was exactly what I was looking for. The author shows us how we are frequently selfish in our way of thinking and fail to put God first and look at our lives from His perspective. Very well done!!I think I bought all that was in stock at the time . Since that time, and since I've been reading the book, I thought of several other people that it could benefit. For a time, there were no more hard copies in stock here and I was forced to look elsewhere for the additional copies. I'm very pleased to see the hard copy stock replenished at my favorite Christian Supply vendor.
